My name is Mark Smith. I'm a guy who loves Jesus, His Word, and His Church. I am filled with Great Expectations for what the future will ultimately bring - Matthew 24:14.

The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World

"Those who talk like this—“Christ unites, doctrine divides”—have simply replaced propositions about Christ with the word “Christ.” It carries no meaning until one says something about him. They think they have done something profound and fresh, when in fact, they have done something very old and stale and deadly."

I first heard Piper say that several months ago when I listened to his biography of Athanasius. Then I heard it again this afternoon while listening to him preach a message called "Toward Spiritual Awakening and Unity." Then I heard it at the beginning of this promo trailer to the upcoming Desiring God National Conference. The trailer made me tingle. Check it: Above All Earthly Powers.
